Everybody knows about SMS these days, and as it has become a regular part of daily life here in the United States, so too have simple, easy-to-use SMS APIs become available for developers to use. But few people know that MMS - Multimedia Message Service - is just as common and pervasive a part of the U.S. mobile ecosystem, and that MMS APIs are also available.
Sixteen APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories including Messaging, Mapping, Air Travel, and Customer Service. Highlights include Facebook Messenger Broadcast API, plus APIs from Mobius, Nylas and Apptivo. Here's a rundown of the latest additions.
Sendbird has announced the addition of voice and video calling APIs to augment its existing chat and messaging API offering. The technology relies on the World Wide Web Consortium's WebRTC standard and offers customers an opportunity to consolidate their in-app communications down to one vendor.
